Around the World: McDonald's Taiwan - Jalapeno Spicy Chicken Sandwich

The second leg of McDonald's Taiwan's World Food Tour lands it in Mexico with the Jalapeno Spicy Chicken with fresh jalapenos featuring prominently in the promo shot.

Unfortunately, fresh jalapeno slices are nowhere to be found in the actual sandwich. Instead, there is a spicy Mexican chili sauce that curiously looks creamy and not-very-spicy. In addition to the sauce, there's a thigh meat battered and fried chicken patty, onions, lettuce, and tomatoes. The bun seems interesting with a smattering of various grains atop (sesame, oats, flax seeds, and a few others it looks like).

Translated (go go Google Translate!) accounts from the Taiwan branch's Facebook page seem to indicate that the sandwich is just a little spicy.

 All-in-all, it doesn't sound very Mexican at all.

The sandwich is offered for a special lunch/dinner price of $99 NT (~$3.40 US) and for $125 NT (~$4.29 US) at other times.

It looks like the final leg of the tour starts in December and will feature a taste of Europe.
